We ordered a table in advance and we could enjoy a very nice atmosphere. Alltough this is a pub, you can not complain about the food. We had beefs with different kind of potatoes. We were very happy about the quality of the food and the service. Recommended.

Very much English pub feel about it with walls covered in UK name plates (a DDR nameplate completely out of place!).Decent menu ,meals are well prepared although helpings are smaller now than previously.Good choice of beers and service at the tables is quick.Weekday afternoons is the best time if you want to eat comfortably because it starts to get very...

I have been in Old Beefeater In because I was walking around and I found out it. I came in and I found a really nice environmental. I order a burger. It was the best I had on Gothenburg. The beer was very nice as well. The price is ok. The service is very nice. Clean toilet. I recommend it!!!!

Visited last year around same time and it was an awesome place to stopover and have some beer with friends. Do visit the rest rooms as its something you will definitely remember about this place as I do.

Upon entering, you can instantly feel the restaurant is trying hard to have an authentic English atmosphere. I ordered fish and chips, and it was made and served exactly as it should be - also for a fair price considering country and location. I have nothing bad to say about this place. It's worth visiting if you live close by... More

Decided to take a break from swedish food and try out this inexpensive english pub. Good decision. The food was good, and the whole family agreed the fries were amazing! Friendly service to top it off!

Old Beefeater Inn has become a regular place to visit when in Gothenburg for me and my family. Friendly atmosphere, nice food, different. A pub is not where I normally would take my bigger kids for dinner, but it is a cool, different place to have dinner, at least compared to where I usually eat.

We decided to check out the food here after reading lots of good reviews, as well as the fact that I like to check out English pubs as an Englishman abroad! I always the the over-exaggeration of the decor in these places. You'd be hard pushed to find an English pub in England these days so the kitchy trinkets, scarves... More
